Parisa Mahmoudi sent me an email to let me know about her new book entitled The Talented Chicken, which is now available for purchase (via email). The story is about a mother hen who is is prodding and pushing her young chick to fly, swim and sing… and seems to forget that her young one is only a chicken!
The book may be in Persian, but the storyline will definitely ring true anywhere in the world.
Look at the fabulous paper-mâché objects by Mumbreeze. A collaboration between Kinya and Kao Hanada, the shop is an outlet for their analog hand-made artworks as Kinya has worked under the moniker Mumbleboy making Flash animations and videos.
See the whole collection of their paper-mâché works on their flickr stream.
Awesome work by Jack Teagle who lives and works in South West England. I love how he makes his characters come alive! Did I mention the humor? Seriously, dead astronaut comics? HA!
From his website:
He enjoys collecting Star Wars, Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles, Spiderman, Ultraman, Ghostbusters, and Toxic Crusaders Figures. He also likes reading comics and watching classic horror films.
Aaahh. I can’t say I didn’t see that coming.
I’m away for a few days since Friday, 17th July (and yes, these posts were prepared in advance!) so forgive me if I seem to respond much slower to your emails. Here’s a couple of reads over the weekend that I think would make good food for thought:
- How to get noticed by the blogosphere. I love that it also mentions what happens when you get featured — there’s a trickle effect that will lead to more exposure! (read the article here by Liz and Kegan from DesignGlut)
- And here’s a great article about stretching your boundaries and how to improve your business by doing things differently by Yoola.
Have a great weekend everyone!
